Satakunta Museum

Lonely Planet review

This excellent museum is laid out with care and imagination over three floors, with the omni-present river and sea showing how water has shaped Pori’s history. There are some fascinating exhibits, from intact Viking skis to a display showing how a handbag’s contents have changed over the centuries. The upper floor explores regional customs and traditions by tracing a poignant journey from birth to death. Each floor has comprehensive English information in a box by the stairs.
